Pete Koslow (Joel Kinnaman) is a former special operations soldier and veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. After serving time for killing a man in a bar fight, while trying to protect his wife Sofia (Ana de Armas), Pete now works as a drug courier for the Polish mafia in New York, a cartel run by The General (Eugene Lipinski). But Pete is also an informant for the FBI, providing information to Agent Erica Wilcox (Rosamund Pike), about The General for an off-the-books operation, aiming to lead to his arrest. But when the FBI’s operation goes wrong, resulting in the death of an undercover NYPD cop, Detective Edward Grens (Common) begins to investigate the murder, mistakenly believing Pete to be responsible. Pete is coerced by the FBI into returning to the prison where he previously served time, to take down the cartel from the inside. When the FBI cut him loose, the only way he can save himself and his family is to escape from prison.

But an agent in NYPD decides to teach the FBI a lesson and to save Pete Koslow who is warned by a black prisoner about what is going to happen so that he manages not to be killed, but to kill his white assailant and then to take hostage one warden and to get loose in the prison where he stages a hectic and wild escape. He is helped in it by the FBI agent he was an informer for and manages to escape from the ambulance when he was transferred to a hospital as the warden he had taken hostage and was killed in Pete’s prison clothes when Pete had put on the hostage’s uniform and identification.
The NYPD agent will finish the job and provide him with a passport and documents necessary for him to escape after seeing his wife and daughter in Central Park, from a distance and assessing all the FBI agents around them ready to terminate him.
We all know the FBI is rotten and the police are not much better. At least that is common in many films and series. We all know prisons are the best crime schools on the planet and that real power is money and no matter what crimes you may have committed, you will always be the boss in the prison if you have the money you need to buy the wardens and the stuff you need to satisfy the “commercial” demand among the prisoners. Prisons are a real crime university and a fully-free-trade market-economy, all managed from some clandestine crime authority, outside the prisons, of course, provided with direct or indirect lobbying agents everywhere necessary.
Entertaining but not outstanding. Especially since the ending is really sad.

This is a me-too crime film. Pike is better as a "Gone" girl than an FBI agent. The whole film had a me-too aspect to it.
